egyptian president mohamed morsi as a dictator and accusing him of a power grab. cnn's reza sayah is in cairo. reza, what's it look like now? >> reporter: joe, it is 11:00 p.m. cairo time. these demonstrators started gathering around in tahrir square about 1:00 p.m. local time. that means they've been going strong for about ten hours. many thought maybe egyptians were worn out, tired of demonstrating after the 2011 revolution, but if you look at tahrir square today, if you look at cairo today, it doesn't seem like it. the demonstrations are continuing. so are clashes. about an hour and a half ago clashes taking place right where we are behind us at the hotel we're staying at. security forces clashing with protesters. a number of protesters ambushed a police vehicle carrying riot police. the police took off. the protesters got ahold of this truck, set it on fire. more security forces came in, shot tear gas and disbursed the protesters. we've seen similar clashes throughout the day. all the demonstrators angry after president morsi declared some controversial decrees that temporaril
said president mohamed morsi. clearly he felt that his position was greatly strengthened by brokering this peace deal between israel and hamas in gaza. but i think he's overplayed his hand. you just showed that video of the protests there in cairo. we'll have to see where this goes. the great fear is that the muslim brotherhood, like other fascist organizations, will be one man, one vote, one time. and we've seen the muslim blo brotherhood move very swift tloi consolidate their power. >> the u.s. stood squarely behind israel throughout this conflict. does that quiet any critics who thought president obama was soft on israeli security? >> i think it absolutely should. what we saw even before the election here in the united states is that netanyahu has said time and again even in the face of critics that there has been no stronger ally to israel than the united states. the criticism kept comincoming, though. after this incident, i really do think the critics will be quieted. there's a lot of talk about how successful the iron dome program wus was. it deflected over 80% of the rockets th

to the government in egypt, the president mohamed morsi, that they would stop firing into israel. if that were to be revoked, that would be a violation. they would be breaking their word to the egyptians and that would cause some serious repercussions i assume, christiane, between the egypt government, muslim brotherhood-led government, and hamas. >> reporter: well, i was obviously talking about what's the perspective from this side was. but of course israel's demand was that there would be no more rockets and no more of that fire going into israel. that was something they really wanted. and of course israel does not want to see hamas resupplied through the tunnel network. that is still to be worked out. i asked him whether or not he got weapons and whether hamas was getting weapons from iran, and he gave me a non-confirmation confirmation. it's an open secret that they come through those tunnels. so that has to be taken in hand. we're not sure how that's going to happen, but obviously there is some egyptian role in that as well. but, yes, egypt is the guarantor of this cease-fire. neither sid

, the principles of the 2011 revolution is in jeopardy, and they believe its current president mohammed morsi who has put those principles in jeopardy. all this outrage and fury as the outcome of a set of decrees suddenly announced on thursday night. these give them sweeping powers and it seems to be an effort to push through the drafting of egypt's all new constitution. one of the decrees says that no one, not even the judiciary can overturn and appeal any of mr. morsi's declarations, decisions since he took office in june. this order seems to be put in place until a parliament is in place. several months from now. technically this is a man who can do whatever he wants for the next few months without any oversight. that's one of the decrees, fredricka, that people here are outraged about. they're describe this as a power grab by mr. morsi. does it seem that most people understand that and does it make a difference at all? >> reporter: no. they reject that position by mr. morsi, and that explains the outrage. dramatic scenes in tahrirr square, including alexandria and port sayid. these are remini
, opponents rallied against mohamed morsi, he met with the senior judges monday trying to quiet the dispute over his effort to assume near absolute power. holly williams is in cairo. good morning holly. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and norah. he met with several senior judges and told them that one of his new powers immuneity from the court would only apply to sovereign matters. the problem is that we don't know exactly what that means. it certainly won't satisfy his opponents. they're holding a large demonstration today in tahrir square, right behind me. you'll remember the square from last year's egyptian revolution which ousted the country's long-time dictator. one of the organizers of today's demonstration told me he is expecting half a million people. that seems ambitious. at the moment there are only a few thousand people out. some of president's morsi's supporters were planning a gathering but canceled that because they were afraid of clashes. we may see more violent confrontations as we have over the last few days. norah, charlie? >> holly, thanks. >>> hum
a very fine line. on the one hand, mohammed morsi from the muslim brotherhood does express support for hamas which is an offshoot of the egyptian muslim brotherhood, but at the same time he has to be very careful when it comes to crossing any red lines regarding the peace treaty between israel and egypt that dates back to the late 1970s, but certainly it's a huge change from just four years ago when the war was going on between gaza and israel. when president hosni mubarak, basically, it was well understood that he had no sympathy for hamas because, of course, the muslim brotherhood were his main political enemies and therefore, this situation is completely different, but morsi and egypt has to really tread carefully because many egyptians have no desire whatsoever to get involved in any sort of conflict with israel. egyptians will tell you we fought war after war with israel and we don't want to go down that path again. >> stay safe and thank you all for your reporting. >>> last night we aired this video showing a man being pulled from flames in gaza. after the video aired we were
throughout the week about what the new president, mohammed morsi has done, a member of the islamic brotherhood, is egypt the next iran that the united states now has to fear? melissa: well it could be. morsi frankly is consolidating power and he is squeezing out the minority, and the minorities are the christians, the liberals and secularists many of whom are in the square right now. the constituent assembly writing this constitution you referred to earlier, the liberals and the secularists and christians have long left to participate in that because they were being frozen out of the process. so it's, it is questionable the value of this document and whether it will accommodate some of the rights and social and political justices that the people in that square are wanting. bill: many people consider morsi to be moving along that line. i mean do you see it yourself? or do you see him holding back from that? melissa: well i think he is probably going to pull back a little bit. i would like to belief the administration and state department is working certainly, you know, off the media
. >>> in the streets of egypt today, scenes just like this one. two sides clashing over president mohamed morsi's decision to grant himself sweeping new powers. the violent protests played out behind closed doors, morsi met with egypt's top judges to explain his move. these are the same judges who are now banned from overturning any decision he makes until a new constitution is finalized. >>> israel, a country in the midst of very fragile cease-fire with hamas, and now also its own political upheaval, long time israeli defense minister ehud barak making the surprise announcement he's quitting. he says he wants to spend more time with his family and make room for new political figures. here he was. >> translator: i feel it is important that other people should take leading positions in israel. change is in the positions of power is a good thing. there are many ways to contribute to society and the country. and not necessarily through politics. >> barak says he will see out his term, staying on as defense minister until a new cabinet is formed next january. barak played a cruel role as a key oppo
in the days ahead. president obama also spoke last night with egypt president mohamed morsi about working together to preserve peace and security in the region. tension between israel and egypt's new islamist government has increased since the attacks with egypt recalling its ambassador to israel in protest. richard haass, also an emergency meeting of the u.n. security council last night. sift through this for us. how big is this? how significant is this in the middle east right now? >> well, it's big for lots of reasons, because it's not happening in isolation. one is you have the largest military clashes between israel and hamas in, what, four year now, and it's not going to stop. at times it doesn't matter in the middle east exactly why things begin. over the last few months there have been hundreds of rocket attacks, now this, then retaliation. it just happens. second of all, it's happening in the absence of anything political. there's no dialogue going on whatsoever between israelis and palestinians. this can't substitute for this. thirdly, egyptians withdrew their ambassador. since
. >> maybe the position of egypt and today president mohammed morsi said this? >> translator: we are with them, what hurts us and the blood that flows from their children is our blood, too opinion. >> what did you make of that? >> we preferred to look at egyptian deeds rather than words. egypt has played a constructive role in the past in mediating cease-fires with gaza and we hope that the egyptians will continue to fulfill a constructive role in the future. >> you must have been disconcerted by the tone of president morsi's rhetoric there. >> again, we prefer to look at the egyptian deeds and they will play a constructive role in helping convince them to stop firing these thousands of rockets at our civilians. >> is your intention at the same time to continue targeting hamas leaders and to continue, if you can, killing them? >> well, we'll take any measures necessary to stop the aggression against the civilians and we're taking immense precautions not to hurt palestinian civilians. our planes have carried out hundreds of attacks and the number of palestinian civilians and have
for the downfall of another president. last week president mohamed morsi placed himself above any oversight, declaring that, quote, the president may take the necessary actions and measures to protect the country and the goals of the revolution. morsi's office says he is trying to blunt and punish remnants of the old regime but there is no bed body to keep him in check. and egyptians are attacking his new power. >> we have a new -- a new -- >> reporter: and the united states, which once saw egypt as its closest arabally, says morsi's power grab is against the spirit of the revolution. the president's office says the moves are just temporary, but many aren't buying it. and now supporters and opponents of the president are planning large protests for tuesday, proof that almost two years later, this revolution isn't over. alex marquardt, abc news. >> so he's going to answer to no one. >> that story's amazing on two levels. one, just the short-term memory that some people have, and, two, the old saying, we all hear how power corrupts. the country got done overthrowing a guy who had ruled with a
? does tony blair think this new egyptian president of the muslim brotherhood, mohammed morsi will be somebody who really wants to create peace there, because we know he has a very different relationship with hamas than the former egyptian president. >> right. he is much more different than former president hosnni mubarak. he has a lot at stake right now, and he knows it, president mor of egypt. he is trying to improve his country, and he knows if egypt, for example, were to sever its peace treaty, that was seriously rupture the entire egyptian relationship with the united states. egypt still gets a lot of economic assistance from the united states military assistance from the united states. it's seeking enormous amounts of aid from the international monetary fund. egypt's economy is in deep trouble right now. exports have dried up. tourism industry has really suffered as a result of what's going on, so i think the egyptians under president morsi, they want to maintain their relationship on a cool level with the israelis, and they would like to see the fighting between israel
the new president. tear gas was fired to disperse demonstrators. many say mohamed morsi betrayed the democratic intention of arab spring when he granted himself sweeping new powers last week. we'll keep an eye on cairo and bring you new developments as they happen. >>> as early as today, we could hear from the u.s. soldier accused of leaking thousands of military and diplomatic secrets to wikileaks. bradley manning says military jailers mistreat ed him for nearly a year. if his attorneys can prove that, his case could be dismissed. if not, manning could face life in prison if convicted. >>> also this morning, forensic experts have what they need to determine if former palestinian leader yasser arafat may have been poisoned eight years ago. just hours ago, they exhumed his body, took samples from the remains and then reburied him. fred pleitgen has been following the developments from the west bank. morning, fred. >> reporter: good morning, carol. the process only lasted a few hours. early in the morning hours, the grave, the tomb of yasser arafat was opened, all of this closed of
this is where they will remain until president mohamed morsi backs away from his controversial decree, which says no person, no authority can overrule his decisions until a new constitution is put in place. >>> tissue samples from yasser arafat's body are in the hands of forensic experts. his grave was opened today in ramallah. samples were taken from his remains. the exact cause of the former palestinian leader's death has long been a mystery. now testing will be done to find out if arafat was in fact poisons. >> the indications we have or the convictions we have that israel have done this assassination but yet we still need evidence. >> israel meantime denied those allegations. >>> a fiery scene in downtown sydney, australia, today. look at this with me and you'll see a cab, look at this, of a construction crane engulfed in flames, black smoke. it gets worse. because this is the moment when the crane, this arm here collapses, falls into a building, barely misses the busy street below. here's where the story gets a little bit more intriguing. the operator of the crane was also the manager o
test for all of us to watch. is the new egypt headed by the muslim brotherhood president mohammed morsi prepared to be a stabilizing force in the region or is it going to move as its ideology might suggest toward an ever more militant stance bringing its basic peace alignment with israel into question? i think one worrisome fact that was in the excellent reports from your correspondents was the lack of support in israel for a ground invasion. prime minister netanyahu is threatening hamas, if you don't come to the table and agree to stop firing missiles, we will invade you. yet hamas surely can watch television and knows how unpopular that invasion would be with the israeli public which limits netanyahu's options. >> on the other hand there's a question of whether president netanyahu has other things that he can do. and who will come to his side in trying to say to the hamas, you know, you face certain kinds of pressures unless you stop the rocket fire. >> the united states has played its hand certainly in a way that -- that helps netanyahu. the u.s., president obama said personally from
of also coming under pressure. egyptian president mohamed morsi sin high marks for his butomatic efforts but his assumption owers have sparked allegations news trying to become a new pharaoh. human rights organization has expressed concern about the decree, saying it could provoke on inatile situation in the re the days, pretty much the way thing things are along the border, charlie. >> back to president morsi, what are the ramifications of this asumption of new powers? >> reporter: he came in on a wave of popular support that people wanted to overthrow all the dictorial powers, virtual dictorial powers that president mubarak had. by assuming rather sweeping powers, morsi provokes the worst fears that people have during durtime of mubarak. e might get away with it. ways going to be a tense situation. he is risking people coming back n the streets. o at is not something he wants to do, charlie. >> allen, thank you very much. >>> lawmakers will pick up their will pic he attacktion of the attack that killed the u.s. ambassador to libya. cheryla at ktkisson is in washington. good morning. >>
. norah and charlie? morsiter evans, thank you. mohamed morsi will speak to the people of egypt today, grantedng why he granted elf almost ast absolute power as the egyptian assembly works on new constitution. holly williams is in cairo this morning where demonstrators have blocked access to the united block embase. >> reporter: this is now a battle of wills between mohamed orsi, egypt's first democratically elected president and his opponents. tahrir square in central cairo, pres rotesters have accused the president of behaving like a areator are camped out. onstrationlanning a demonstration there on saturday. there are fears that could spark spark mlent clashes after an lready tumultuous week. address tmorsi will address the later later on today. so far he is showing no signs of backing do backing down from the expanded new powers he gave himself last week. week. he says he needs those powers to guide guide egypt to a new constitution. the constitution is being drafted by an assembly dominated by president morsi's islamist allies. two more liberal members quit because they said thei
as demonstrators threaten egypt's new islamic president mohamed morsi with a second revolution. with all this going on president morsi is on the cover of "time" magazine. last hour i talked with one of the reporters who talked with morsi in this exclusive interview. and i asked carl vick why "time" is calling him the most porpt man in the middle east. >> one, he's sort of central to what they call a new sunni access these counts a counterweight to iran emerging thinking of qatar in the gulf and turkey certainly. and egypt has always been the largest most populous arab country, it's always been sort of the anchor. if you're the president of egypt, by default you probably should be the most important person in the middle east. right now the circumstances also are favoring morsi. and the other reason is because he holds the sort of future of egypt in his hands right now and of the revolution with what he does in the coming couple of months. >> uh-huh. and another new development to tell you about today. egyptian lawmakers dominated by islamists are now rushing to draft a new constitution. this move is
a recent decree by president mohamed morsi granting himself near absolute power in that country. managing director joins me now. obviously the impact now of the market here in the oil market in particular is what is each of the false into civil war. what happens to oil them. >> you have to look at the suez canal, therefore the price of oil. they do have a history of the army stepping in to maintain this. order in a situation like "the trade" time, what we have now is a different type of egypt. we had a guest on yesterday telling us the muslim brotherhood and hamas are the same thing. a terrorist organization in the minds of u.s. officials. >> there's a segment of it that is in another segment that is more modern wanting to rule with sharia law. it does not hit the city of military activities hit the muslim brotherhood and of itself is fighting amongst itself in addition the secularist. this is an evolving situation that will take several years to work out. they want to become a revolutionary anti-american, so the threat is there another more to keep prices up. you can't jump to the conclu
almost two years ago, the demonstrators are voicing their anger with president mohamed morsi after what some are calling an unprecedented power grab. cnn's reza sayah is joining us from cairo once again. reza, we're hearing about attacks against several muslim brotherhood offices in egypt. what do you know about that? >> reporter: according to the brotherhood spokesperson, two of their offices were attacked by anti-morsi protesters. the brotherhood says the protesters were carrying molotov cocktails, clubs and knives and destroyed and heavily damaged these offices. remember, muslim brotherhood had called for a one-million-man demonstration of their own today to rival the opposition's demonstrations. late last night they called it off to avoid violence. but in these two particular cities north of cairo, they didn't avoid violence. >> reza, we're also seeing and i want to show our viewers some live pictures from tahrir square in cairo not far from where you are right now. you were there earlier in the day. who are these protesters? and there are huge numbers there. we see the tents. what'
